Here is another tab/chord chart for a song from the 
Modern Lovers' 1976 album, *The Modern Lovers.* 
I would be extremely interested in hearing from 
anybody with corrections, comments, etc.

Pablo Picasso

Some people might be familiar with this song from the *REPO MAN*
soundtrack. The modern Lovers didn't do the version played in the
picture, but it is their song.

This song has only one chord, which makes it a bit easy to play. The
basic riff is an E chord (an Em, I think) with a G bass note on the
third beat. This is played over and over throughout the entire song.
It goes like this:

   Em (?)

e-0-0-0-0--|-0-0-0-0--|-0-0-0-0--|-----------------------
B-0-0-0-0--|-0-0-0-0--|-0-0-0-0--|-----------------------
G-0-0-0-0--|-0-0-0-0--|-0-0-0-0--|-----------------------
D-2-2-2-2--|-2-2-2-2--|-2-2-2-2--|-REPEAT-AD-INFINITUM---
A-2-2-2-2--|-2-2-2-2--|-2-2-2-2--|-----------------------
E-0-0-3-0--|-0-0-3-0--|-0-0-3-0--|-----------------------

To be honest, I can not tell whether that is an E or an E minor, but I
like the sound of the E minor better. Your call . . . 

The solos are in E, and consist of a lot of E's. Try the E minor
pentatonic scale on the twelfth fret.

Here are the lyrics, with the chord:

Em (see riff above)

Well some people try to pick up girls
And get called a**holes
This never happened to Pablo Picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare and 
So Pablo Picasso was never called an a**hole

Well the girls would turn the color
Of the avacado when he would drive 
Down their street in his El Dorado
He could walk down you street
And girls could not resist his stare
Pablo Picasso never got called an a**hole
Not like you
Alright

Well he was only 5'3"
But girls could not resist his stare
Pablo Picasso never got called an a**hole
Not in New York

Oh well be not schmuck, be not abnoxious,
Be not bellbottom bummer or a**hole
Remember the story of Pablo Picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare
Pablo Picasso was never called an a**hole
Alright this is it

Some people try to pick up girls
And they get called an a**hole
This never happened to Pablo Picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare and so
Pablo Picasso was never called...
